Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Our objective was to describe the technique and utility of functional MR cholangiography (fMRC) in the evaluation of the gallbladder and biliary tree. CONCLUSION. FMRC has the potential to provide a comprehensive examination for the anatomic and functional assessment of the gallbladder and biliary tree. Complex anatomic abnormalities and functional disorders can be shown by fMRC, including biliary obstruction and extravasation.
